The First Actresses

Portraiture and the 'Feminine Face' of Eighteenth-Century Celebrity Culture

The lecture explores the role of portraiture in the construction of early celebrity culture, with reference to the recent exhibition 'The First Actresses' at the National Portrait Gallery. It examines the relationship between the worlds of art and theatre, and the idea that celebrity culture could be seen to have a 'feminine face'.
